Cardinal Sign

Definition of Cardinal Sign

Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are the leaders in the zodiac, and are often considered the most successful as a result.

In Astrology, the word Cardinal is derived from the French "cardo", which means "hinge". Cardinal Signs are the hinges that connect and direct our lives — the initiators.

The Cardinal Signs also usher in their respective seasons: Aries launches Spring for example; Capricorn launches Winter; Cancer launches Summer; Libra launches Fall.
